A warrant from the Central Police Department says McDaniel was charged with aggravated assault and battery Saturday.
The incident report says a woman identified as McDaniel's girlfriend said the sophomore also punched her in the head, face and chest, and pushed her down a flight of stairs. (OK, the flight of stairs thing definitely makes it a crime in S.C.)
The report says the woman was treated at a hospital for a cervical sprain and contusions.
Clemson athletic spokesman Tim Bourret said in a statement that the athletic department was gathering information about the incident.
